I am in Spain and received a package from China about a month ago.
Three of my classmates and I finally finished our robotics project in a month. After a busy month, I have some free time to post some comments.

This car is very large, and the tracked chassis is very stable and can walk on any complex terrain, but it walks slowly, which may be the only shortcoming of this guy.
Regarding functions, Yahboom provides a lot of source code and schematic diagrams, we modified some codes and changed a little structure to create some unique functions.
But they do not provide APP source code, and technical support told us that this matter involves copyright. However, we recruited some information on Github and designed a simple version of the APP. Based on the communication protocol provided by Yahboom, we realized the remote control.

The walking speed is a bit slower than I thought, maybe because of its heavy weight, because the body is made of aluminum alloy. The most complex site has been assembled, in order to save some time. After all I'm one and hate assembly. I prefer to experience a newly arrived product quickly.
Note that it is not a simple toy and is more suitable for those with programming experience.

Nice Robot and active after-sales service

Before buying the transbot, I searched all over the Internet for an AI robot which armed is with Nvidia’s most powerful Jetson Nano develop kit. This is the most advanced and complete AI robot I could find on the market. At very beginning, I was going to buy Yahboom’s ROS version of Transbot on Amazon, because it’s easy to return, but eventually I decided to go on their store to buy a full version of Transbot including the mechanic arm and7” display (for trouble shooting), because I wanted not only an autopilot vehicle but one with robotic function as well.
I have played with many robots since I was in a top-ranked high school robotics team, Yahboom transbot is the easiest one and also the most comprehensive one. You can bypass the most time consuming part of robotics—searching for mechanic/electronic parts and putting them together. It only took a few hours to put the parts together and If you are lucky, the robot can get to work right away, because Yahboom has a flash drive loaded with a complete set of software modules, and mobile phone apps are enabled. The robot can be operated by App in mobile phones and joysticks. From there, you can start your real AI robot journey. Yahboom has full courses and examples for developing AI based robot, so you can develop your own version of AI robot.

I was not one of those lucky ones because my Nvidia nano board was not working properly, so I called tech from Yahboom, and they are very nice and very sophisticated. They spent days and nights to identify the problems, and finally they shipped me a brand new and fully tested Nvidia Jason nano board. Their service is beyond great.
I will continuously buy robot products from Yahboom and strongly recommend Yahboom for all your AI robot project needs.

Great product, and excellent quality!

I received my Transbot in a timely manner, and when I asked about the status, I was given a quick status of my order. Putting together the Transbot took about 6 hours, and everything worked properly. I recommend you watch the Video Instructions provided in their website, since the manual provided doesn’t cover everything.

I don’t have any complaints, but one improvement is that Yahboom should provide instructions and best practices on how to develop on the Jetson Nano while the Transbot is on your workbench, this way you don’t have to rely on the battery, this would make the product a lot more fun!

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Approximately how fast can the robot move? How fast can it move carrying the maximum payload weight?

    Hello Friend,
    Thanks for your question.
    1)This robot maximum payload weight 5KG.
    2)The speed of the car is related to the frictional force of the ground, the motor, and the current battery voltage. We have not accurately measured its speed at present.

  • HI, am about to place an order, a few questions first: 1) Am i right in saying, once build by the user, its ready to use with all the code installed on the card, SO all the control functions (track and trace, lidar, scanning etc etc) are all working via the remote control or by the app? 2) The course's your have in transbot repository, these are there to learn how the robot does what it does and to expand programming in python? So you get a robot that does all the trick, but lets you learn how it does and expand the programming right? 3) Can i confirm you are able to copy the SD card and resort back to factory settings if for example i was programming it and messed up, worse case robot stops working as ive messed with the programming - Will i be able to plug in the original SD card and restore back to how i got it? So basically have a SD card from you, copy it and play about with programming with the copy?

    Thanks for your question.

    1) Except for 3D mapping and navigation, all the functions can be implemented on the APP. Of course, you can enter the system to implement these functions separately. Because the algorithm of 3D mapping navigation function is more complicated, you need to enter the system to complete this function.

    2)Yes, You are absolutely correct.

    3) Transbot's special operating system has been written into the SD card we provided, and you can use it directly.
    If you mess up the system, a card reader is provided in our kit. You can also download Transbot's special operating system files on the website. You can rewrite the operating system to the SD card at any time.
    And we will also provide professional technical support And after-sales service.

  • Hi there, I'm very interested on your robot. Quick question : I would like the robot to follow someone walking autonomously (while avoiding other people or objects or walls). Is the lidar following function enough ? I don't understand clearly what functionality the depth camera adds ? (specifically in actively following somebody). Additional question : what is the robot maximum payload (if there is any) ? Thanks a lot

    Hi Friend, sorry for late reply. There are some time difference, so i didn't reply you on time.
    1. Yes. As shown on our video, robot can follow someone walking autonomously (while avoiding other people or objects or walls).
    2. Depth camera can complete 3D vision scanning-related functions. For example, combined with lidar can realize 3D vision mapping navigation. If there is no depth camera, the robot can only complete 2D mapping navigation through lidar.
    3. Transbot robot maximum load 5KG.

  • Do you have a URDF model file for the Transbot? Can I control it directly with Python?

    URDF file has been included in the ROS sys tem image file we provided, 
    Path: software/transbot_library/src/transbot_description/urdf
    We developed this robot through the Python programming language, so you can use Python to control it.

  • Hi there, Could this be used up to a distance of 100m, in the forest (for example), with no wifi available (maybe just a cellphone). Is there any sort of lantern or system to give some light in dark scenarios? Thank you

    Thanks for your questions. Transbot can automatically launch a WiFi hotspot. As long as your phone is connected to this WiFi hotspot, you can remotely control Transbot via your phone. If you want to use dark scenarios, you can choose HD camera, it comes with two high-brightness searchlight. However, the radius of 100m is too large for the WiFi hotspot of the car to cover such a wide range.

  • Can i attach my DOFBOT robotic arm (or part of it) to this transbot? and it would work with DOFBOT robotic arm software

    Thanks for your question.

    1) About programming and hardware circuits, DOFBOT robotic arm and Transbot vehicle-mounted robotic arm use the same metal servo, and they use the same driving method, so the codes used to control the robotic arm servo are same.

    2) About control software, Transbot and DOFBOT are not using a remote control APP, their communication protocols are also different, and they cannot be used in common with each other. DOFBOT has a dedicated PC software, but we have not developed such a remote control method for Transbot.

    3) About structure, a special buckle is used between Transbot vehicle-mounte robotic arm and Transbot robot. This buckle is not suitable for DOFBOT, so we cannot fix DOFBOT or a part of it on the Transbot robot.

  • I have the same question as the previous person. Does the Depth Camera have the same video performance (resolution, frame rate, quality, etc.) as the HD camera? Can you buy both the HD Camera and the Depth Camera?

    Thanks for your questions.

    HD camera and depth camera have different performance (resolution, frame rate, quality). For their detailed parameters, you can click 【View more】 on the 【Description】 page of the product, and view the specific parameters of the camera at the end.

    If you want to get HD camera and depth camera at the same time, you can purchase the depth camera version Transbot, and pay an additional $50 to get  a HD camera package.

    You can contact me by email or WhatsAPP, and I will create an order for the high-definition camera for you.

  • I am a big fan of yahboom products! Can you turn off the lidar when near it? I take it the spinning thing is Lidar, Does the depth camera have simple passive stereo or also has lidar or generate EM wave?

    Hello friend, thanks for your support to Yahboom products.

    As you said, the lidar is spinning on the robot.  When approaching, you can choose to close it.

    This depth camera has no electromagnetic waves. It mainly detects 3D objects through infrared and combines lidar to detect plane distances to complete 3D mapping navigation.

    Any other problems, contact us again, we will reply you ASAP.
